The restaurant provided some of the worst food I have ever tasted. From the mushrooms to rice, everything tasted the same, over salted and generally of bad quality. To make matters worse and due to the lack of effort from the staff we were not provided with menus which indicated that in the evening the buffet price more than doubles... More

The food was cold and very tough to eat. Noodles had dried out and gone really tough Asked server for two tap waters and got given two bottles instead when asked I was told that is the only water they serve. The only good thing about it was getting a table was easy and it was warm.

Having been here on several occasions previous to this one, I thought it about time I wrote a review on my findings... I have been to Buffet City at lunch time as well as evenings and I must say there is a marked difference in the two. The menu at night is of a much wider variety lots more choice.... More

First time I've been here and I was disappointed the service was terrible, staff were not helpful, the food was hanging around for ages as they didn't change it for fresh. I had an upset stomach after eating here. Would not recommend

Lunch visit & food was ok but no shredded duck & pancakes "too costly" was reply. Food could've been kept warmer & inconsistent on quality. Satay chicken tasted like fish?? Wife had to put coat on as was cold inside....

Went here for lunch which is in the cheapest time (before 4pm) it's £5.95 each plus a refillable drink then whereas £11.95 after 4pm I think or something like that. The selection was fairly wide ranging and plenty of it, I believe there is more choice in the more expensive time slot but only from friends. Overall I'd say it... More
